3K Flares 3K Flares ×

I don’t know that these need an intro.  I do know, however, that I need a chocolate fix something fierce and this is a great way to use up leftover candy from the kids’ baskets, buckets, stockings, etc. I love a good brownie recipe and I love Snickers so this was kind of a perfect brownie recipe for me!

Ingredients -

 

¾ C. flour

2 C. semi-sweet chocolate

2 tbs cocoa powder

4 tbs. butter

3 eggs

1 ½ C. sugar

½ C. packed brown sugar

1 tsp. Vanilla extract

1 tsp. Baking powder

8×8 or 9×9 baking pan

snickers brownies brownies recipe

Frosting ingredients -

¼ C. butter or margarine, softened

1/3 C. cocoa

2 C. powdered sugar

1 tsp. Vanilla

3 tbs milk

 

Directions -

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line your 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish with foil and spray with a non-stick spray.

#1. Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

#2. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter and chocolate in 15-20 second increments, stirring until completely melted. Let cool 2-3 minutes.

#3. In another bowl, combine the eggs, sugar and vanilla. Add in the melted chocolate mixture and then slowly add in the flour and cocoa mixture and mix well.

#4. Pour enough of the batter into the bottom of your baking dish just to cover the bottom. Spread with a spoon or spatula if needed.

#5. Lay the Snickers bars on top of the batter about 1 centimeter a part – you will need about 8 bars for the entire pan and may need to break 1 or 2 in half. Once all the candy bars are in place, pour the rest of the batter over the top and bake for 25-30 minutes. Insert a toothpick around 25 minutes to check them. If it comes out ‘clean’ they are done.

Let the brownies cool completely.

 

Frosting directions -

#1. Combine the cocoa powder, butter, sugar and vanilla. Slowly add in the milk 1 tbs. at a time. You may want to add in more milk depending on how thick you like your frosting. Using a hand mixture, beat on high for 2-3 minutes.

#2. Once the brownies have cooled completely, lift the foil out of the pan (love the super easy clean-up!) Evenly spread the chocolate frosting over the top of the brownies.

#3. Cut into *12 squares. Break the rest of your Snickers bars into quarters and gently press one into the top of each brownie. **You could double the servings by cutting the the pan into smaller size squares – 24 if desired

*Makes 12 servings is cut into 12 squares – 1 square = 1 serving. Store in an airtight container up to 1 week
